Traitor or Patriot? Visionary or Fool? Friend to Democracy or Enemy of the Crown?

What role did William Lyon Mackenzie play in the history of Toronto? Mackenzie House looks to explore Victorian Toronto and the contrary and controversial man who had such an impact on our city – from journalist to mayor, mayor to exile, exile to politician.

This tiny, historic former row house sits surrounded by skyscrapers in the heart of downtown Toronto, just steps from Canada’s busiest intersection. Discover the Mackenzie story and gain a glimpse into the gritty Victorian era in which he lived: a time of macabre fascination, an era obsessed with crime, secrets, spirits, and death. Learn about the history of the house, the diverse people who made it their home, and the ever-evolving urban neighbourhood that has grown up around it.
